  1. I used my Tesoro Outlaw and Nautilus in the farm fields of Ohio a lot. Rutus Alter 71 and Simplex saw some field time also. Here in Texas relic hunting mostly the Rutus and Simplex
  2. My very first Minelab E-trac was different than any other one I ever saw or used. The VDI numbers were off by a couple but it didn't jump on pennies or dimes. it was deadly accurate, I didn't know it was different when I sold it and only reason I got rid of it was they offered us dealers really good prices on demo units we had to keep for a year and could sell. My thought was I would get a new one each year which I did but I wish I would have never got rid of that first one.
  3. I see that you found it. Unfortunately none of us are gold prospectors who do the podcast but only because we aren't in areas that produce much gold. Hopefully I can get Steve Herschbach back on the podcast though!
  4. I agree with every word you say and glad to see someone will say it.
  5. I love this post! good for you! is this something you are building a 1 off for you or are you thinking about going in business? I have used many metal detectors over the years and for most detecting I prefer a digital metal detector but when it comes to relic hunting in farm fields I prefer analog. In my opinion, after using many metal detectors analog works through the iron better time and time again. A new digital detector will come out and I think it will be the answer, "this one will finally be the one to beat out my old analog metal detectors" but so far it hasn't happened. I would love to have a simple 2 tone analog metal detector, 1 tone for iron another for everything else with a volume control for the iron tone (which could be set up on a pot to determine your own break point) with about 3 different size coils starting with about a 5 inch and going up. Can't wait to see what becomes of this.
  6. I agree with you on that green patina, something about it is just appealing! Probably a once in a lifetime thing to find my 1916 D mercury but I always hope I will run across another one!
  7. I have never found an 1877 Indian but I was fortunate to find an 1872 with incredible detail. Being a semi key date Indian if it didnt have the green patina it would be around a 500 dollar coin. One thing I was lucky enough to find was a 1916 D mercury dime that graded out to VF-35 and ironically enough I found both coins in the same weekend hundreds of miles apart!
  8. I'm back! P I wanted to address a few things here. First is Gypsy - she is one of the most humble, sweet, hardcore detectorists I've ever met. She's been detecting for about 25 years and has swung detectors from all the major manufacturers. Lol no it's not her real name but as you can imagine being a female in this hobby she has dealt with some serious inappropriate behavior. She's also a cohost on our all metal mode podcast every Monday night. Steve - I apologize, life has been crazy and hectic. All is good just a lot going on. I would still love to discuss that with you. Dirt digest magazine - without getting into much detail, myself and my good friend are in the process of acquiring it. Big changes and improvements are coming so stay tuned.
  9. I have always wondered about some of you guys looking for gold, wandering around for miles if you've ever come across some cool stuff that wasn't gold like small caches, guns etc. Anyone else have any stories similar? I would love to hear them
  10. As I was logging on this morning I thought to myself " I love this place and I need to start mentioning it on every podcast" keep up the great work Steve!
